Unashamed Thing rip-off
28 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

SLEEPING DRAGON, the eighth episode of the first series of the TV show MONSTERS, is pretty good, a tele-film that lasts about 25 minutes and tells a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end. The story is about an ancient rock which scientists discover deep in the ground; they transport it to a snowy research station where it hatches and proceeds to wreak havoc.

Yes, this is a THING copy through and through, although of course it's nowhere near as frightening as the Carpenter flick. Instead it's cheesy but not without merit, as it's basically a guy in a rubber suit running around and scaring people. The special effects are cheesy but the performances are okay and this is the most filmatic of the show yet.
